Palestinians all across the West Bank and in East Jerusalem are planning to carry out marches and rallies, slated to begin in the afternoon after Friday prayers, to protest U.S. President Donald Trump's landmark declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

Palestinians have already declared earlier this week that they are planning "three days of rage" and over 20 Palestinians were hurt in clashes with Israeli soldiers on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Israeli army attacked positions inside the Gaza Strip in retaliation to rocket fire at Israel from the Strip earlier in the day.

Palestinian factions, including Fatah and Hamas, have called on people to set out on marches around checkpoints and known flashpoints with Israeli security forces.

Hamas went even further, calling on the Palestinian people to emb ark on a new intifada effective immediately, coinciding with the thirtieth anniversary of the First Intifada, which broke out in 1987. Hamas' politburo Ismail Haniyeh's comments were backed by Hezbollah head Hassan Nasrallah who on Thursday also stated it was time for a new uprising.

While the Palestinian Authority is unlikely to try to prevent the demonstrations, it is going to remain committed to preventing chaos and an exacerbation of tensions that could result in an armed conflict.

Assessments indicate that the PA is going to try to encourage Palestinians to adopt the protest model that was characteristic of the past summer's crisis, when Israel placed metal detectors at the entrance to Jerusalem's Temple Mount, which is also home to the Al Aqsa Mosque, sparking protests.

Israel had ultimately decided to remove the new security measures after immense protest and pressure from both Palestinians in the area and from neighboring countries, a decision the PA credits to the protests it had inspired and encouraged at the time.

Over in the Gaza Strip, protests are also being planned, and demonstrators are expected to try to approach the security barrier along the border, which is likely to lead to a confrontation with Israeli security forces stationed in the area.

On Wednesday, Trump said in a televised address that he recognized Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel. He also said that the U.S. would eventually move its embassy there, a move that is expected to only begin happening over the next years. In the meantime, Trump has signed on the waiver that now postpones the move by at least another six months.
